Hi, wpDiscuz has Emoticons while wpForo has Emojis (why double implementation…..?) . Is there a possibility to synchronize them when using wpForo Cross-posting addon ? I mean both groups to share same individuals code and appearing somehow coherently in both places (comments thread, forum topic).

I was excited to see this was finally released, but it appears to be missing the key functionality that I asked about, so before I spend $, I’d like to get a firm answer. I am looking for Quicktags support in WPDiscuz, not emoticons. I need Bold, Italic, Hyperlink, etc. controls so that commenters (even guests) can make comments with such standard markup. Is this included in this paid add-on or is it planned?

3 years 1 month ago

As it’s already mentioned in wpDiscuz > Addon page it’ll be built-in free function. We’re planning to add it in wpDiscuz core in next release.
